TNA Facial Pain Network

Online community for patients & caregivers | 1-800-923-3608 M-F 9a-5p EST (USA)


Indianapolis Regional Conference
Trigeminal Neuralgia & Chronic Facial Pain Symposium
April 26, 2014

Scheduled speaker: Fletcher White, MD is an internationally recognized expert in the field of chronic pain mechanisms. His research group studies the sequence and nature of the neuroinflammatory events that govern neuron and non-neuronal communication in the nervous system following injury. Many of these events may be critical for the discovery of new therapeutic targets for chronic pain treatment. Since his arrival at IU in 2009, Dr. White has authored over 25 papers and reviews on possible pain mechanisms and novel treatment paradigms.
